To Prepare

“It’s very important to described a research study”

  • Read the Learning Resources on conducting a literature review. Pay particular attention to how reviewing the literature can help you build on and refine your research problem.
  • Read the Learning Resources on theoretical and conceptual frameworks. Think about the differences between the two and how each might guide a quantitative or qualitative study.
  • Review your prior Week’s Discussion on a quantitative and qualitative research problem, purpose, and research question. Given the additional literature you have read about your research problem, consider how you might build on and refine it.
  • Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guide your quantitative and qualitative scenarios. Depending on the context of each scenario, the same specific theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework could guide both scenarios.

    To help identify a specific theory visit:

  • Alignment of scenario elements is important. See the Examples of Aligned and Misaligned Scenarios document, which can be downloaded from the Week 2 Learning Resources area of the classroom.
  • Discussion posts are pass/fail but have minimum criteria to pass. See the Discussion Rubric, found in the Learning Resources, to ensure you understand the pass/fail criteria.
